    Yep, and with some smart shopping, you can get the original TBS-Disco with everything that comes with it, for less. Although i am a sucker for cheap chinese crap, this one doesn't look like a good deal at all.

    Thanks to all you guys, I now have around 90% confidence in flying with Manual Mode. Here is the video of my first manual mode dives. Manual Mode starts at 2:53. Top Speed at 6:03. Now, if I could only find a solution for the FFF vibrations

    Well, that escalated quickly

    Again, the original is a lot cheaper & no doubt a lot more reliable.

    our frame is actually about $40 cheaper than that "3K carbon" one. that's pretty interesting imho

    and a lot more pretty, apparently, which is probably why they ripped our photo as their main one. LOL. our "RTF" package that we just added costs the same - with FPV gear included - as theirs without.

    very nice video hagay, looks like you were doing something cool in your vacation or was that from your home university?

    just got done tuning my DISCOVERY with the new DISCO ESCs and 750kV motors. Write those down if you have your name on a 750kV power system

    How many engineers does it take to change a light bulb?
    3. One to hold the light bulb and two to turn the ladder.
